Wait Well

Your whole life is one waiting period after another: Will you get into your first-choice school? Will you get that promotion? Will she marry you? Will the loan get approved? Will the cancer take him from you sooner rather than later? Like it or not, you’re going to have to wait. So, challenge yourself to learn to wait well. Wait with hope. Not blind optimism, or naïveté, and not hope for a specific outcome. But wait with hope in the character and goodness of God. No matter the circumstance, no matter the outcome, put your hope in the eternal glory of Christ. Then as you wait, you can experience abundant life, peace, and love in his presence.

Other texts in this message: Proverbs 13:12, 23:17, & 23:18, Psalm 130:1-8

Think about what you’re waiting for
Ask God to help you wait well

Use this VERSE to help you wait well:
I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
– Psalm 130:5&7

Ask God to use you to bring hope to someone who is waiting
